Review: Sorry wrote this review when very inexperienced with paintball. Now is a NEW and UPDATED review with all new Information!

First off I want to say that this tank is not the best on the market for sure. I have encountered many problems with the tank's regulator which is in fact made by DXS. The brass pressure pin has broke and I am not the only one that this has happened to. The pin breaks and you have various pressure outputs and the begin to decend to 0 psi even though your tank has air in it. Problem was fixed by Draxxus but it was a pain because my local pro shop had a load of them to ship that were broken.

Appearence:

Looks good with the smooth glass with a nice fiber wrap. Definatly should buy a tank cover as a MUST

Saftey:

Regulator has numerous saftery features built into it to insure nothing bad can happen including the regulator screwing off and blowing off. Regulator is screwed and locked in a hardened steel threading that is deeply locked into the steel structure encased in fiber wrap. 2 Pressure disks for HP and the LP.

Bang for the buck:

I payed 150 for this and I was a little dissapointed with the flaws such as the pin
Good tank though if taken care of. Recommend to get a cheaper tank

Size:
Big size with large capacity ! Won't have to fill up as much I get a lot of shots off.

Overall:

Quality: 7
Durability: 7
Efficencey: 9
Size as in how big the tank is itself: 8
Price:4
Weight: 10
Regulator: 3

Total: 48/70 Decent
Conclusion: Dont spend all your money on the tank. Buy what you can afford!

Dispute:
Hydro date on most carbon tanks last 5 years, not 10. THERE ARE NO TANKS THAT HAVE A 10 YEAR HYDRO. Also steely tanks are fine. Hydro date doesn't mean the tank will fail after the date. You can get any tank retested and it will be good for another 3/5 years, until the hydro expires. hydrotesting is simply a safety test.

side note to walker: as well -> a non-aluminum tank on average has a service time of 15 years, after that point your tank can not be hydro'd and must be retired - aluminum tanks don't have that kind of deadline.
